    I am curious. Forgive my ignorance by the way.
    But do any here have similar views to the Amish or similar groups... in their heart?
    I sure would like to learn more about this, and from people here who have been searching as well.

    Thank you.
    God bless you all.

    I used to be Amish and I'm still Continental Baptist.

    Elk,

    Absolutely! I feel close ties to the Mennonites, Brethren, and Quakers, as well as to the General or Arminian Baptists.

    I'm staring a communion which combines Celtic and Baptist/Anabaptist theology and practice.

    Michael, what does "Celtic" mean to you?

    rsr,

    It means the following: a rich worship tradition; it fosters prayer in everyday language; is 'green' in its stewardship of the earth; affirms women and men equally; is committed to living in community; nurtures radical discipleship; is passionate about peace and justice; has no divide between sacred and secular; engages critically with contemporary culture; is rooted in mission not maintenance; poetry, music, and the arts are very important for the expresion of Celtic Christian spirituality.

    Most of the Celtic emphases are also held by the Anabaptist tradition.

    My core beliefs remain Baptist/Anabaptist, and I find Celtic Christianity to be in harmony with these core beliefs.

    Dear Michael Wrenn,
    Thank you for elaborating on that. I learned a lot. Is there a place on line that talks more about it? Thank you.
    God bless you in Jesus' Name.

    Elk,

    You'll find there is a lot of controversy about Celtic Christianity--what it is and isn't, who represents it and who doesn't, etc.

    Just type in "Celtic Christianity" and you'll get a lot of sites to go to. There's also an Anabaptist site that mentions the similarities between Celtic Christians and Anabaptists, although I can't remember where it is at the moment.

    God bless!
